Around the world, many people celebrate National Poetry Month in April. The American Society of Poets has a great list of 30 Ways to Celebrate National Poetry Month. The League of Canadian Poets celebrations Canada-wide with events, readings, discussions, and poetry awards. The Gerald Lampert and Pat Lowther Memorial Awards shortlist was revealed earlier this month. My friend Serena also has a huge poetry tribute online with a blog tour. Visit her site, Savvy Verse & Wit, for details on the virtual Poetry Month celebrations.
The Canadian Cancer Society also calls April Daffodil Month. Similar to wearing a poppy on your lapel in November, you wear a daffodil to “show your support for Canadians living with cancer and let them know that no one has to face cancer alone.” You can also wear a virtual daffodil pin on your Facebook or Twitter.
April is a lot of things worldwide. Check out this Wikipedia list! What do you celebrate in April?
